I know that none of the "hip" and "radical" academics that dominate the US will ever demand that any action ever be taken against Israel for her crimes. Right now as Israel bombs Gaza and kills innocent children liberal and leftist blogs like CT are completely silent. The AAUP and people like Claire Potter, "the Tenured Radical" still oppose BDS claiming it is a violation of "academic freedom." Potter in fact spreads the deliberate lie about BDS that it requires the boycott of individual scholars rather than institutions and is therefore different than the academic boycott of South Africa. It is not any different and Potter knows that she is lying. The liberal left establishment that controls the US Democratic Party, media, and academia has long given unconditional support to Israel. The blood of Palestinian children is on their hands and they have no shame.
